On October 24, 2019, seventeen teachers working in Westchester County child care programs, were honored at a graduation ceremony for having completed the Council’s Preschool Child Development Associate Course. They begin this intensive 120-hour course in March 2019.
70 plus family child care providers from the Council's Quality in Action initiative celebrated their work and each other at a dinner at Juliano's Caterers on Friday evening. A big thanks to Teresa Garcia of CCCW and Amelia Monroy of Family Services of Westchester (FSW) who support and are inspired by this hard-working group!
On December 3rd Nonprofit Westchester celebrated the work of the nonprofit sector at the Keeping Westchester Thriving Awards event. We are so proud of Juanita Pope, recognized as a member of Nonprofit Westchester's first Emerging Leaders class AND excited about Lindsay Iacovello's starting the program in February 2020! We happily continue to support and encourage our employee’s professional growth.
Thanks to all the early childhood educators who came out on Friday, Oct 18th for our "Prescription for Play" Early Childhood Conference - great location, inspiring presenters, and most importantly, a room full of smart, caring professionals busy launching our next generation. It would not have been possible without the support of the Westchester County Office for Women and the partnership of the Westchester Chapter of the NY Association for the Education of Young Children. A great day!
